After two nights of racing at the historic Knoxville Raceway, the starting lineup for the lone B-main race and a partial lineup for the feature have been set. Drivers accumulated points during the events held on Thursday and Friday at the Knoxville, Iowa facility with those points being used to establish the grid for Saturday night’s Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals.
Current Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series points leader Ricky Thornton Jr. won each of the features held on Thursday and Friday. While the preliminary races did pay out a $7,000-to-win purse each, there were no points toward the series championship awarded.
There will be one B-main on Saturday night with the top-6 transferring to the feature:
B-main Lineup: 1. Billy Moyer Sr., 2. Justin Zeitner, 3. Tim McCreadie, 4. Tim Lance, 5. Ross Robinson, 6. Ricky Weiss, 7. Matt Furman, 8. Boom Briggs, 9. Tim Simpson, 10. Dan Battaglia, 11.
